Imagine spending day after endless day at the end of a short chain – unable to explore, sniff, run around or play. With no water to drink when you’re thirsty and nowhere to shelter from the rain or the burning sun.
And when you struggle to get free, the collar bites deep into your flesh, rubbing it raw until eventually there’s a festering wound alive with maggots. Or the chain gets tangled and slowly strangles you to death.
Sadly, chaining the dog up in the backyard is an accepted practice in parts of Durban.
And it’s not just cruel – it’s illegal.
